not just yet

You’ve still got time on the Fine Cooking giveaway because we were too busy to get to it today.

Today is our Smoochiversary or I’m Glad I Met You Day. We are celebrating sixteen years together!

We went down to Boulder and replaced our old toaster oven that is on the outs. And we went to do a little bit of shopping…

After which we had a lovely dinner to celebrate our special day. I looked across at my dinner companion and felt that same flutter of my heart he sparked 16 years ago.


I’ll review the restaurant tomorrow. In the meantime, enjoy your extra hour tonight (if your clocks hop back!).

    WRX! Vroom! Vroom! Sedan? Congrats on the new car and your special day!

    NaBloWriMo is over! Did you sign up for NaBloPoMo? :-D (I did it last year but I don’t have it in me to do two straight months of posting on a daily basis. Quality takes a huge hit!)

    A smoochiversary…I love it! Here’s to many, many more heart flutters. Cheers!

    We just celebrated our 8th and there certainly is nothing better than being with someone who makes you smile so much. :o)

  10. Leah says:

    WRX! Very nice! What a fun way to celebrate your smoochiversary! We considered purchasing a WRX pre-kids, but now with two, we’re in an Odyssey. Funny how quickly life changes!

    Can’t wait to hear about the food! Congrats on 16 years!

  11. Manggy says:

    Happy smoochiversary Jen! That is such a delightfully girly name :) Can’t wait to see all the courses from your special dinner!

  12. Margie says:

    Happy Anniversary to you and Jeremy. It’s wonderful to be ‘invited’ along for the celebration. It will be fun to see the food. :)

  13. linda says:

    Did you really buy a Subaru Impreza WRX? You plan on doing some rally driving?
    Happy anniversary!

  14. zoe / puku says:

    congrats to you two! ( on years and purchases). Although I am completely happy eating on formica tables / concrete benches / the ground if the food is awesome, there is still something about a formal table setting that makes the heart flutter just a little.. can’t wait to see what you actually ate on it! :)

  15. Cynthia says:

    You two make a darling couple. And cute puppy too.

  16. Mollie says:

    Happy Smoochaversary!!! :) Love the car…

  17. Lori says:

    Congrats! How nice that is, the flutter of your heart.

  18. Sarah says:

    Aw, congratulations on your sweet day. Neither me nor my boyfriend actually remember what day we had our first date…so we just celebrate approximately. :) Hope your dinner was amazing, since we already know the company was!

  19. cindy says:

    happy 16 years! my brother had that car and i loved, loved to drive it…so much fun!

  20. Mrs Ergรผl says:

  21. jenyu says:

    KatieC – thanks, babe!

    Manisha – nope, 5-door (for the dog). Thanks! No way I’m signing up for NaBloPoMo. My personal blog has been neglected quite long enough :) I agree, the quality in mine has plummeted.

    Rosa – thank you!

    Bridget – I can’t take credit for the name, but it is appropriate :)

    Maja – thanks!

    Fiona – thank you.

    Susy – great that there are others who beat the odds!

    Diana – thanks so much!

    April – that’s sweet of you, thanks and I totally agree!

    Leah – well, the WRX was in the plans for a loooong time and we finally got around to it. It’s just a coincidence :) Thanks!

    Mark – thanks, love. Check out the next post for the review!

    Margie – thank you!

    Linda – ha ha, just rally driving in my head ;) We bought one. We pick it up Monday, but it has nothing to do with the Smoochiversary :)

    Zoe – thanks. You make a good point. There IS something about table settings… it’s wonderful, no?

    Cynthia – thank you.

    Mollie – thanks, babe! When you come to visit, I will zoom you around in the WRX.

    Lori – :)

    Sarah – ha ha, ours is easy to remember. I went to a U2 concert on Halloween night, then saw the pumpkin drop on campus at midnight and then went to find Jeremy to see a movie in the dorms :) The dinner was great – you can read about it on the next post.

    Cindy – it’s a bit of an addictive car to drive :)

    Mrs. E – thanks, dear!
